Is ground flax seed safe?

I just read that you should avoid flax seed during pregnancy. I've been taking a tbs almost every day mixed with phsyllium for constipation and haven't had any problems that i know of yet. I'm 18wks. Should i stop taking it?

I haven't heard of that, and I can't see why not.

That's what i thought, if you just don't take too much and get a belly ache. Thanks

Re: Is ground flax seed safe?

Anyone have any better remedies than phsyllium and flaxseed? I mix ground flax seed, phsyllium, and Kyo-Green, which tastes and smells like yucky fish powder, every night. Yuck, makes me gag, but works pretty good.

Your best bet would be to ask a doctor, I have an herbal book and they all say do not take while pregnant

I use benefiber from the grocery store. I mix it in with my chocolate milk. Can't smell it, can't taste it. I love it.
